International standard venue for Asian Cup 2018

South Melbourne FC to host 2018 Asian Cup of Table Football at Lakeside Futsal

One of Australia’s most famous football clubs, South Melbourne FC, has thrown its weight behind table football and the Asian Cup to be staged in 2018.

More than 50 players from Australia, Singapore, Japan, Malaysia and Hong Kong will take part in a festival of table football in January 2018 at South Melbourne Football Club’s brand new Lakeside Futsal Centre and 1959 Bar and Grill.

Opened in 2017, the state of the art facilities represent South Melbourne’s significant push to re-establish themselves as one of Australia’s football powerhouses with an A-League licence the ultimate goal.

“We’re excited to host this international event at our new facilities and we can’t wait to see the best Table Footballers from across Asia in action,” said George Kouroumalis, Operations, Media and Marketing Manager for South Melbourne FC.

“We’ve also teamed up with the Melbourne Table Football Club, who will also be on hand to use our facilities across the remainder of the year. At South Melbourne we are passionate about everything football related so Table Football is a natural fit for us,” said Kouroumalis.

His comments were echoed by Tournament Organiser Benji Batten, President of the Australian Table Football Association (ATFA).

“We are thrilled to be able to hold our world class tournament at a world class venue, which is sure to create a fantastic spectacle for players and spectators,” said Batten.

The event will take place on January 20 and 21 at Lakeside Futsal with the Opening Ceremony and tournament draw at the 1959 Bar and Grill on Friday, January 19.

Sports Table Football, or “Subbuteo” as it is widely known, is a game based on association football. For many years it was marketed as “the replica of Association Football” or “Table Soccer”.

The 2018 Asian Cup will be the fourth in the competition’s history, with Melbourne hosting the inaugural event in 2015.

In addition to an individual competition, the top clubs from each country will compete against one another, and the highly coveted national team event will determine the region’s top country.

Australia will be seeking to claim their first ever title on home soil but will face stern competition in Singapore who have won the previous three titles.

1 – Welcome and introductions
The meeting was opened at 2.30 pm and the President welcomed members to the meeting. Participation at the meeting was facilitated using video conference facilities.

2 – President’s report
The President reported there was continued growth of table football across the country, with more people playing and participating in events. There are currently 15 affiliated clubs across six states with the most active clubs being Perth SC, Brisbane, Western Flickers, Sydney TFC, Melbourne TFC, Parramatta and Northern Falcons. There are currently 54 Australian players in the FISTF rankings and 127 players in the WASPA world rankings.
A FISTF International Grant Prix was held in Sydney, an International Open in Melbourne, and Satellite event also in Melbourne. Australia had a team at the Asian Cup in Japan, and had players participate in the FISTF World Cup. WASPA events have been held every month of the year.
A significant amount of ATFA’s effort has been focused on formally establishing the association through its incorporation in New South Wales, and establishing memberships of the association. There are now 39 adult members, and nine junior members.
Finances have come into the association through membership fees ($10 per person) and in the future the association will be less reliant on donations.
Earlier this year the ATFA Board discussed its role and decided the focus would be on ATFA being primarily fulfilling its administrative functions and that clubs and players would concentrate on organising events. This allows membership fees to be set a low level and encourages members to sign up. It also allows individual clubs to develop their own model to meet their own needs. In future, any FISTF tournaments will be organised by individual clubs (awarded to those clubs through an application process), and they will take responsibility for the organisation and financial aspects related to those events. ATFA will not itself be organising events.

Item 3 – Financial Report
The Financial Report was provided by the Treasurer and has been provided to all members.
The anticipated revenue for ATFA is expected to cover its administrative costs which include incorporation fees, banking fees, FISTF registration fees, and website hosting fees. Additional revenue might be gained through increased membership of ATFA. At this stage, it is not anticipated that increased revenue is needed.
Steve Dettre noted that FISTF has committed a total of 200-to-400 euros for assistance towards the costs of hosting the Asian Cup in 2018. Should this materialise then it will be put towards costs such as the venue fee.

Item 4 – Outcome of board election
The returning officer (Steve Dettre) provided the outcome of election for positions on the ATFA board. The outcomes were as follows:
PresidentBenji BATTEN (Melbourne TFC)
o Elected unopposed

Vice PresidentRaffaele LOMBARDI (Sydney TFC)
o Raffaele LOMBARDI (Sydney TFC)                    20 votes
o Adrian CONNOLLY (Western Flickers TFC)     19 votes

General SecretaryPeter THOMAS (Melbourne TFC)
o Elected unopposed

TreasurerEliot KENNEDY (Northern Falcons TFC)
o Elected unopposed

Board Advisor (Communications Officer)Adrian ELMER (Subbuteo Parramatta)
o Elected unopposed

Board Advisor (General) – Two positionsGiuseppe TARDIOTA (Brisbane Subbuteo Club) & Christos GARAGOUNIS (Northern Phoenix TFC)
o Giuseppe TARDIOTA (Brisbane Subbuteo Club)    29 votes
o Christos GARAGOUNIS (Northern Phoenix TFC)    14 votes
o Beth EVELEIGH (Melbourne TFC)                              13 votes
o Adrian CONNOLLY (Western Flickers TFC)              11 votes
o Steve WRIGHT (Western Flickers TFC)                        6 votes
o Raffaele LOMBARDI (Sydney TFC)                               2 votes
Note: Two (2) votes were made in error to Adrian CONNOLLY (Western Flickers TFC), in contravention of the requirement as listed in the voting procedure: “You can only vote for Adrian Connolly or Raffaele Lombardi as a Board Advisor if you have NOT voted for them as Vice-President.” These two votes were discounted already, providing the above figure as listed. Similarly, one (1) vote was made for Raffaele LOMBARDI (Sydney TFC) in contravention of the requirement. The above figure represents the discounted voting. These voting mistakes did not affect the outcome of the election for these two positions.

Item 5 -Priorities for 2017-18
The President outlined the general priorities for 2017-18 and provided members with the opportunity for feedback and discussion. The priorities were ensuring continued growth of the game through ongoing promotion, encouraging clubs to host WASPA events, and assisting clubs to hold successful FISTF events. There are forthcoming FISTF events coming up including an International Open in Perth (July), Sydney (September) and a Continental Championship in January. It is hoped that there will be a positive announcement in the coming weeks with regards to the venue for this event.
To encourage greater participation the development of mini circuits will be encouraged in each state/city to try and maximise attendance.
ATFA will investigate ordering some official shirts in the coming weeks. These shirts would be for events such as the World Cup and Asian Cup.
It is proposed that ATFA should develop a code of conduct that all players must agree to play in ATFA events. It is hope to have this in place by September.

Item 6 – Any other business / member feedback
Steve Dettre asked whether any Australian players were planning on participating in the World Cup. The President stated that he expected Robert Green to be playing. Fabrizio Coco stated that he expected Raffaele Lombardi and Daniele Lombardi to be interested.
It was noted that there will be items on the FISTF Congress agenda for voting. These items should be sent to ATFA in advance and will be discussed by the ATFA Board.

Meeting closed.

Big movers in Asian Rankings

Singapore’s Rudy Hesty jumped into top spot in Asia on the back of his runners up slot in the Singapore GP, closely followed by countryman Anas Rahamat in second place, after his victory in the same event.
The Singaporeans’ movement meant Peter Thomas (AUS) lost his top position for the first time in Asia in 2017.
Biggest mover in Asia was Ashley Tan (SGP), former champion in the 80s, who leapt back into form with a grand performance at the Asian Cup in Tokyo, to rocket 512 world placings and 56 in Asia to sit in 27th position.
Another returnee, John Edwards (SGP) made a spectacular entrance to the world rankings, debuting at 515 and 60 in Asia.
Raffaele Lombardi (AUS) stormed into Asia’s top 10 with his appearance in the Asian Cup final, sitting now in 9th place.
Robert Green (AUS) also was a big mover, pushing up 7 places.
In the teams category, Melbourne TFC lost their top spot to Singapore Lions, falling to 4th as both Jurong Central and Yokohama overhauled them.
In the Veterans category, Robert Green still reigns supreme, after taking the Asian Cup.
Singapore dominates the U19 with Giovanni Choong (SGP) leading from Isaac Lim (SGP) and Mohd Bolkiah Musa (SGP).
In the U15, Jonty Brener (AUS) still leads, from Benjamin Ng (AUS) and Gabriel Lombardi (AUS)/
In the U12, with many of the players now moving to the older age groupings, Tan Yi De (SGP) and Tansihq Vikas Chandiramani (SGP) leading the way.
In the ladies category, Beth Evenleigh (AUS) still leads, but Eiko Yoneda (JPN) has moved into second place, ahead of Imojjen Elmer (AUS).

Asian Cup adventure

The Asian Cup completed its first orbit around the continent in early June when the third edition of the tournament was staged in Tokyo, Japan, following the path of Melbourne, Australia in 2015 and then Singapore in 2016.
Singapore’s Tan Kok Wee claimed the 2017 trophy, beating Australia’s Raffaele Lombard 2-1 in a tense and close match.

IMG_2622

Kok Wee had stormed through from his group, beating seeded player Hideaki Wada (JPN) 4-0.
It was one of a number of upsets where the top seeds failed to take their group, with Antonio Carabillo (HKG) as the tournament’s third seed being the biggest casualty, being dumped out by Ashley Tan (SGP) and Steve Dettre (AUS).

19059262_10154360149531116_4386881123731240771_n

Raffaele, ostensibly being in the toughest four person group, beat tournament #2 seed Kenzo Koi 2-1 to top his group.

18951405_10154360149336116_5668408335552771475_n

Ashley Tan followed up his 3-0 win over Dettre to then beat Carabillo 2-0, who needed a win against Dettre in his last match, but could not break the determined goalkeeping of the Aussie to lose 2-1.
Rob Green (AUS) won his group comfortably, after beating #4 seed Bernard Lim 2-0, while John Ho (SGP), Cedric Garnier (FRA) and Gareth Thomas (WAL) won their groups.
Aussie Hugh Best had to face off with Katsuhiko Fukuoka in a shoot-out before making the Round of 16, where the surprises continued.

19030589_10154360149091116_8132109466109387537_n

Kok Wee eliminated Kenzo Koi, while Steve Dettre knocked John Ho out on sudden death shots. Ashley Tan continued his surprise run with a 7-1 romp over Taichi Kato (JPN) while Lim needed a golden goal to beat Suguro Fujino (JPN) in extra time. Gareth Thomas beat Hugh Best 3-1, while Raffaele was continuing his impressive run with a 6-0 win over Hideaki Wada (JPN), and Greenie beat Makoto Miyake (JPN) 4-1.
It meant that three Aussies had made the quarterfinals; the same number as Singapore, with Garnier and Thomas making up the 8.
Probably the biggest shock of the tournament was Kok Wee’s 3-1 thumping of tournament top seed Garnier, with Cedric later saying he had no answers to the skills and shooting of the Singaporean.
Green edged out Dettre 1-0, escaping a last minute equaliser when his keeper tipped Dettre’s shot onto the bar and out.

18951159_10154361000876116_3332022257559357234_n

Lim upped the tempo to beat Ashley Tan 3-1, while Raffaele beat Gareth 2-1.
Both semi finals saw some incredibly tense table football, with defence dominating, before Kok Wee and Raffaele progressed to meet in the final.
Green won the Veterans event, beating Lim 1-0, while Eiko Yoneda (JPN) won the women’s event, and Singapore’s Tan Yi De won the U12.

18952790_10154364975231116_2565054184667839288_n

In the teams, Singapore Lions were triumphant against Yokohama OSC.
In the national team event, Singapore beat Australia 2-1, then beat Japan 4-0, before Australia beat Japan 3-1, with Singapore claiming their thir successive title.
Plenty of praise needs to be heaped on tournament organiser Kenzo Koi and his magnificent organising team. Truly a testament to the growth of the game in Asia, following on from well organised and attended events in Australia and Singapore.

Harley Ullrich

Harley Ullrich turned up one night at the North Sydney Police Citizens Youth Club back in 1989.
Somehow, we had managed to convince the manager of the venue that table soccer would be a good mix for his club.
In amongst the various martial arts, the weightlifting, ballet and gymnastics, the Falconians Table Soccer Club was an odd inclusion.

IMG_1431

But the bonus was that we had a big sign on the front of the building: Subbuteo table soccer – Monday nights.
And so, a 14-year-old Harley wandered in one night, curious about the game, curious to learn.
Another North Sydney Boys High student, like so many of the originals on the north side.
He became a regular at the Falconians and then when we moved to Stanmore and created the Concoria Club.
Always enthusiastic, despite a few drubbings (“I’ll never forget Gary beating me 17-0”) he was a club regular through to the mid 90s.
When things died down in the late 90s, we lost touch.

IMG_8696

A couple of years ago, searching through facebook, I came upon Harley again.
August 20, 2015: Hey Harley, Are you the former Subbuteo player?
A month later, he got back: “Hey i didn’t see your message. Yes I am. How are you Steve? Been a long time since I played Subbuteo. Are you or anyone still ‘flicking’ around?”

And then he was back into it, playing in tournaments, and getting Giuseppe to paint up a couple of teams for him. He played in the AGP16, getting quite into the game, coming to Northern Falcons nights.

IMG_9070

By this stage I already knew that he had beaten a tumour that had caused issues with his eyesight. His doctors had given him the all-clear, and he had already booked his tickets to travel with us to the Asian Cup in Singapore, June 2016, when he sent me a note.

IMG_9104

“Hey Steve. I’m arriving 7pm Thursday 9th and leaving midnight Sunday 12th, hopefully. I’m having a scan tomorrow which will hopefully clear me to go. Something came up in my scan on Tuesday which my doctors are concerned about. Possibly a new tumour. If it’s confirmed then the trip is off and I start radiotherapy next week. If it’s ok then I’m good to go. Will let you know tomorrow.”
We messaged pretty constantly. We talked about football, the Socceroos and Subbuteo, his health and his treatment.
I knew things were getting tough for him.

IMG_9235

He kept playing, taking part in the AGFA, the Spring League and coming to club nights. He always played things low key when people asked him.
“Pretty positive”, “past the worst of it” and “getting there” were his catchphrases.
Towards the end of 2016, despite his confidence, things got worse.
The cancer was affecting him more.

Harley, back row. Last tournament he played. AGP17

Harley, back row. Last tournament he played. AGP17

He had registered for the AGP17, then contacted me a week before the event to ask about times.
I told him that no one would have thought any less of him if he pulled out.
But he would have none of it.
“If I don’t turn up, then someone gets one less match, and I’m not disappointing anyone.”
Plus he wanted to come on the Friday night dinner draw.
He messaged me: “I’ll be there Saturday. Not sure how I’ll go but I’ll play. I’m more worried about the Friday night now. Pasta is probably the hardest thing for me to eat and I’m guessing that will be the main type of food as Fab is doing the catering. It’s crap because I love pasta! I’ll still be there. I’ll manage somehow.”

IMG_8715

And manage he did.
He lost to Benny Ng 3-0, Rik Bland 2-0, then had a 3-3 draw with Tony Credentino.
He then told me he wasn’t feeling great, said farewell and quietly left.
His brother, Simon, told me they saw him on his way home, proudly sporting his Northern Falcons shirt. “We were all thinking, what a crazy shirt. But he was smiling, because he’d had a great day out.”
“It was the last time Harley went out unassisted,” said Simon.
We talked more on Messenger. Through his sister Zoe, I learned of the expense of his treatment regime.
So the table football community kicked in what we could.
And it seems it was not just the Aussies who helped, with donations from around the globe.
The treatment helped, though he was up and down.

Through February and March, the treatment helped, mainly with his attitude. We met up at his place.

IMG_8748

He monitored the Subbuteo events from his bed. Wanted to play in Hermann’s Bratwurst Cup, and had vague plans of going to the Asian Cup in Tokyo. “I saw the scores and photos from last Friday and was quite jealous. I would love to have gotten involved. Same with the Japan trip. I’m getting better but that’s going to come way too soon. Next year maybe. As I said, I’m getting better it’s just not happening very fast. I’m in a good place mentally though. I’m 100% sure I’ll beat this. Thanks Steve.”

IMG_8756

IMG_1430

From talking with his sister, I knew it wasn’t going to be such an easy battle.
In April and May, we talked about the AGFA, Japan and his treatment.
He wished us luck in Japan. “Next time.”
On Sunday morning, 11 June, as I was preparing in the hotel to go to the venue for Day 2 of the Asian Cup, the text arrived, sent by Zoe, that Harley had passed away.
We lost a great friend and a passionate teammate.
Flick on!

28th WASPA BLC

June 2017 Competition

10 June 2017 and our 28th tournament was held at the Woody Point Clubhouse. We started at 1.00pm on a pleasant “winter’s” day with host Giuseppe ‘Pino’ Tardiota, Gus Gillespie, Gareth Whalley and Shane Robinson.

A ‘home and away’ round robin was put in place and commenced with Gareth against Gus and Pino playing Shane.  Despite a high pressing game by Gareth, Gus played his methodical game to score three times without reply. In the other game Pino was always in control of a relaxed 2-0 result against Shane.

Next up Pino played Gareth and again looked relaxed as he controlled the game winning 2-0. Gus and Shane continued their ongoing run of close matches, this game highlighted by opportunities and saves at each end. At full time, Gus took the game 1-0.

Game three matched Gareth against Shane. This match was very close and was only sealed 2-0 with a late goal by Shane. Gus took on Pino in a game that would possibly decide a clear group leader. It was played with their usual competitive cut and thrust tactics, Gus using method and close touch versus Pino and his direct approach. In the end a 2-1 result to Pino placed him top after the first round was completed.

Match four saw Gus hit top form by beating a shell shocked Gareth 5-0. In the other game, Shane managed a creditable 1-1 draw with Pino, both goals having been well worked. Match five results were interesting. Gareth again allowed a bunch of goals with Pino winning 5-1. Scoring goals is something Gareth has been working on and it was a positive in this game.

The other match was interesting….Shane took a two goal lead to halftime against Gus with a couple of nice chips. Within minutes of the restart, Gus chipped in from the same spot and was level after about five minutes. Then, minutes later, a stray shot from Gus across the box brushed the underside of Shane’s hand on it’s way to a goal kick. In the spirit the club, Gus was awarded then penalty which he duly scored. Shane hit the underside of the crossbar twice in the remaining time but Gus won 3-2.

In the final matches, Shane lost 0-1 to Gareth who deserved his win after some great pressing and probably the goal of the day. After leaking a few goals in earlier games, Gareth was determined to get a result and threw everything into blocking. The goal was much deserved due to the opportunities he has been creating.

The final game was between Pino and Gus. Gus needed to win, Pino only needed to draw. In another fine match, both players stuck to the task and in the end, Pino got the result 2-0.

Overall, there were more great games and close results. Gareth has continued to adapt to the “new style of figures and tactics’ and admitted it was nice to win a game after being belted a couple of times.
